Let's talk about this transracial thing ...
Posted: 6/19/2015 11:45:23 PM
black people are racist...my parents had an unfortunate incident in Florida way back in the early 80's...an innocent Irish couple wandered into a bar full of black people....a couple of moments later my ma and da scurried away as quick as you could because the clientele rounded on them in such an accusatory fashion.

My parents are Irish, they are not racist....they imagined they'd be welcome as tourists, guests of the country...no such luck.

I think it's thoroughly disgusting how the American dream seems to be wrapped up in the whole w.a.s.p. type view of the world....grow some balls people and have some faith....fvck the old order and welcome the new.

And whilst I am in full rant mode, I just want to say that the New York Times is a pile of shite....a modern day version of full on racism at play there....those people involved in reporting for them are total bastards...they really hate those of Irish descent and those who are Catholic....I don't know what the Irish did to them but it would seem they really hate us a lot.

No, No, No....I'm definitely not confused - I promise!

I know what I'm talking about and I'm sorry for putting it in such a way that I confused anybody.

I'm talking about actual Irish/African Americans of which there are many including Barack Obama and Muhammad Ali.

ETA...That was a really good article you posted - I agree with every word it said, all of it true.

Also I just wanted to say that the Irish word for black skin is 'Gorm' which translates as Blue into English. Interestingly a very popular name for black dogs in Ireland is 'Blue'.

Back on topic......I find it interesting that many African Americans whose skin colour primarily (allegedly) denotes their cultural ethnicity identify so strongly with their own Irish roots; especially after Obama's discovery that his great great grandfather came from the aul' sod. It became quite a lucrative trend for Irish genealogists employed to discover many African Americans' Irish heritage.

I don't care personally what someone's skin colour is - black, brown, yellow, pink, freckled...if you're Irish I think it's wrong to pretend otherwise haha.

If I grew up with a load of siblings who are supposedly a different ethnicity to me, I'm sure I'd identify strongly with them. I do think Rachel Dolezal is a little out there though, but there's nothing wrong with being eccentric in my book.

It's a terrible terrible thing to read this news. Poor aul' Cowboy.

No doubt this thread will do his daughter's heart good should she chance to peruse it.

Unfortunately my most abiding memory of the man himself was the dreadful campaign of hate which was led against him at one point several years ago - 2010 to be exact. There were some awful viperous people hanging around here at the time.....it's a pity I associate that ugly episode with him but then again, reading this thread has kind of restored my faith in people too and it's nice to see that a lot of people truly appreciated him regardless of that campaign.

But the fecker banned me from creating threads (that may or may not be a good thing....) and I can't help but feel a little fed up about that.

Which state will be the last to legalize gay marriage?
Posted: 6/2/2015 7:21:00 PM
^^^^ I was tempted to make a similar post!!

I agree, Dee's mate was definitely teasing her.

Meanwhile in other news:

http://www.newstalk.com/reader/47.301/48208/0/

Some Australian bloke said this about the Irish

"The trigger was a vote in Ireland - I love the Irish and half the parliament's full of Irishmen, but these are people who can't grow potatoes, they've got a mutant lawn weed as their national symbol and they can't verbalise the difference between a tree and the number three" he said.

Mr Morris was complaining after a member of the opposition, Tanya Plibersek, had said her party was going to put up a vote on same-sex marriage, following the vote here.

Clearly the national pastime in Australia is to be obnoxious as possible.

[...]No need to thank me of course, I'm happy to help. BTW did you know that inserting your penis into an excrement factory is abnormal Human sexual behaviour, but I suppose you don't realise that because you are suffering from a Mental Disorder. There is hope for you though, because the statistics tell us that there are more ex-gays than gays.[...]

Oh I don't know Msg 179....perhaps you should attempt having your prostrate gland massaged and let us know exactly how abnormal that feels for you. I'm sure all the Heterosexual males out there who enjoy pleasure of the anal variety are dying to know what you think.

Just in case people don't realise, the same same marriage referendum in Ireland gained a resounding yes vote precisely because the voters were voting for equal rights for all LGBT members of our society... for all of the people in reality. This is the first step of many towards a better society.

Well, it's pretty difficult to read anything into what you have written as your posts read like gobbeldygook to me.

I'm trying to envision an Ireland where immigrants take over and demand we change our constitution back. I really don't see that happening unless we have a whole load of far right Christians from America moving here and I think those IS lot are too scared of the Irish to come here and cause any bother.

That clearly angers some people, as can be seen from the stream of vitriolic abuse, directed at me, in posts 28 and 30.
Rather laughably, in an earlier post, it has the temerity to lecture ME, about the "rules of the forum."
I don't need to resort to insults.

You've been nothing but insulting on this thread!!

This 'it' was right about you breaking the rules of forum posting, the only laughable thing about me reminding you of the rules is my expectation that you might be more respectful of other posters and follow them in the future....I'd forgotten about you being such a child.

And if it is me who is supposed to be religious, I don't know where you got that idea from - but as usual you just see/think/hear/believe whatever it suits you to.

OT: Yes forum contributions can suggest a lot about some posters .....the fact that they are completely bonkers!

Mush, you surely haven't come 'all the way' back here just to badmouth jo?

Well, it wasn't the purpose of my coming 'home' (as such)....I just saw the way he was addressing another poster and kind of went ballistic. I'm sorry for being a pain and being horrible....I apologise to you and anybody else who found my delivery somewhat unnecessary and unkind but not to him.

Mysticus

I went in a cell by myself and this copper came in and got his d1ck out and stroked it while he asked me if I knew what masterbation meant. ( I didnt at the time) but told him 'put that by me and I'll rip it off' lol

That was awful to read - Thank God the little girl that you were then was mad and bad enough to give that fvcker a verbal punch in the gut.

I never saw a real live one until I was age 19 - I'm still sweet and innocent to this day almost a hundred years later - I'm lucky, I think.

But I remember a class outing at age 11 to the National Art Gallery where there was a Grecian statue of a naked man at the foot of the stairs we were supposed to ascend - I was absolutely enthralled and couldn't stop looking at it, I thought it was really beautiful, all of it, not just one particular part....but Sr. Teresita disturbed my revelry and whooshed me up the stairs clicking her tongue quite loudly with obvious annoyance on her part...she kind of made me feel a bit bad for being fascinated by pure unadulterated beauty.

Notts...

This may be a totally prejudice thing, but has anyone else noticed that those who are "slow" often have large dongs?

Hmmmmm....hahaha, I can't say I have noticed that particular phenomenon - anyway, I only ever want to get down and dirty with the boys who are brainiacs....in my experience them lot have been well endowed enough for my satisfaction.

they are the cause of humanity's delayed development - they are the preventative rather than the cure.

What you deem development I deem decay. What shall we approve of next to make mankind more accepting and better? Some people are into bestiality, shall we make that lawful too? Why are we depriving them of their wishes? After all, that doesn't hurt anybody. Live and let live.

I am unsure as to whether to take your comments seriously or not - Should I trust that you believe what you are writing then I think that your mind is quite warped....and I feel terribly sad for you.

If you can't distinguish between love and a need to control and dominate a vulnerable being for sexual gratification or some other more perverse reason even, then you are stupid beyond belief and incredibly, tragically ignorant.

Nottinghamfellow,

Any idea of the percentages for and against in Ireland for the gay marriage referendum at present?

I'm not sure, but I believe that public opinion weighs heavily on the side of the yes vote. Actually I've just had a young woman call to the door, she was canvassing for a yes vote and giving advice on how to register to vote....I asked her how things were going for her, she said she was getting a very positive reception from the people who's houses she was knocking on, that it seems as if everybody so far plans to vote yes to equality.

I do know that yes vote campaigners are adamant that even whilst it seems we are all on the same side and that the referendum will be passed we shouldn't become complacent and everybody should make sure to use their vote....the no side are being ridiculed from a height over here but they still have support from all the people they are scaring the crap out of with fake scientific 'facts' and other such nonesense.

We are voting on the 22nd of May.

I for one found the details of the Garda Representative Associations comments very interesting.

Thank you Mush.

Yes, what I posted was more for your attention than any of the other posters on here. I'm aware the awful, painful, destructive argument being laid on this thread against same sex marriage...is not actually a constructive thing, primarily because those who profess to being 'anti' and those who profess to being 'pro' are merely exercising some sort of battle of wills as opposed to being actually genuine, right and honest.....you will have observed that our contributions to this thread have been completely ignored......

C'est leve.....did you know that GRA (as in the Garda Representative Association....that Acronym, GRA when translated from the Irish Language means 'Love'

Anyway....I told my wayward son about the GRA's position on same sex marriage and equality...he's a boy who hasn't experienced the best of the local police and he basically laughed his head off àt an institution he considers hugely flawed and who are quite judgemental when it comes to how they exact justice....snobbery is rife in Ireland...and if you come from a certain strata or socio-economic demographic, you can be guaranteed that you willl be treated quite differently....my son is so cynical and I agree with him as it happens...but nonetheless it's pretty cool that the GRA are making this particular representation....long may this desire for inclusion for all live !!!

Och Aye...sure the self-professed celibate who only uses this here dating site and these here forums to change the world view of all the ignoramuses that abound on here is clueless about respecting others point of view and exercising critical thought....he's so repetitive and such a gossip mongerer, you might as well call him a poisonous viper.

And I agree, the less said the better in some cases - why engage with an utter retarded twonk '(retarded' as in, less evolved intellectually and academically, not anyway else, than your own self)

What is 'Newzoids'?

I'm waiting for Mr. Pipe and Slippers to have my profile nuked....he can't appeal to a moderator to have my posts deleted and to get me a ban because there are no more mods....so he is propably doing his best to get at least ten people to individually ask for my profile to be deleted otherwise he'd have responded to my posts concerning him already.

I don't care for bigots but I thank them for being so offensive that they force the world to change for the better

What utter crap...the only stuff bigots are useful for is driving things even further underground than before due to the insane bitterness, inexplicable anger, lack of humanity, lack of rationality - pure unadulterated craziness - in other words what they spew forth, otherwise there is no use for them - they are the cause of humanity's delayed development - they are the preventative rather than the cure. There is nothing good about bigotry at all or ever.

This is a tired argument. If one is a racist and is called a racist then the person calling the racist a racist must be a racist too. What bullshyte! So it follows that when a bigot is called a bigot then the person calling a bigot out must be a bigot as well. Well, if intolerance of homophobic bigotry makes me bigot who is intolerant of homophobic bigotry, then call me a bigot. I'll wear the badge proudly.

Actually....it has been said many a time and studies have been done which suggest that those who are virulently homophobic (many amongst their number at least) are actually gay people who are in denial of their own sexual orientation....so there to all the more aggressive homophobes posting on this thread!

Please please please watch this all the way through. I have to warn the redneck that it is a man in a dress, but at least he is Irish, and I know the Irish are loved in USA, so way to go...

I know it will not change anyones mind, but the Republic of Ireland are having a referendum this year on the topic of gay marriage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIhsv18lrqY

In reference to that referendum happening in Ireland in May this year, I thought I'd offer this titbit from today's Irish Times

The body representing rank and file gardaí has defended urging its members to vote in favour of same-sex marriage in the upcoming referendum,saying the stance does not contravene the requirement on it and its members to remain apolitical.
The Garda Representative Association used an editorial in its Garda Review magazine to urge members to vote Yes. It was the first time the organisation, which represents more than 10,000 gardaí, has recommended how its members should vote in any referendum or vote.
General secretary PJ Stone said the association stood over its remarks and saw no issue with expressing a preference for one side of the debate.

“The GRA don’t see this as a political issue,” he said at the closing session of the association’s annual conference in Tullow, Co Carlow.
“We see it as a moral issue and we believe all of our members should have equality under the law as every other citizen should have equality under the law.”
Mr Stone pointed out that Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin had supported the association’s stance, saying all bodies representing workers should strive for equality.
Under the oath they take on becoming Garda members, all gardaí commit to remaining apolitical, including refraining from joining a political party or working in support of any party.
The Garda Review editorial pointed out the association had long campaigned for equality on issues of disability, race, gender and sexual orientation within the force.
“The marriage equality referendum is the first time that many of our members will have the opportunity to directly support such equality in the legislative process. Your vote is your voice; together we can make a positive difference.”


Should you read the above, you'll note that it offers up a sobering thought (I hope).

For those who don't know : "The Garda Síochána is the Irish national police force. It has responsibility for carrying out all policing duties in the Irish State. In addition, it provides State security services and carries out all criminal and traffic law enforcement. The name Garda Síochána in English means 'guardians of the peace'."

This is where we're so different,
where we always were.

My only "audience" is the person with whom I'm attempting to communicate..
It's more a "conversation" than a "spectator sport".

If that is the case than you have been misusing the forum....it's not a chat room rather it is a discussion board where opinions are expressed upon the OT for all to read. It flies completely against the rules to use discussion threads to focus solely on conversing with one other poster, you are not supposed to monopolise a thread with personal chat/agenda et al.

Besides we all know you play to your audience, that is your prime motivation when it comes to writing the ridiculous nonsense you do....you're addicted to all those 'pats on the shoulders' you get in pms aren't you?

MSG 22

I am sure Colon, has had two profiles, but in my time J T+1 only the once.

Who is J T +1?

As for the mush, I have no idea how many but I am only aware of the one in my time (though I think I recall her saying she had been banned from making new threads so maybe I am wrong there)

I'm not sure what your meaning is there....are you talking about my having had more than one profile on this site or me being a previously banned poster?

Even so I'm not sure of the relevance....I was hoping you would say of me that my forum contributions are wonderful, erudite, intelligent, well thought out, always right and that clearly my posts suggest about me that I have a fabulous personality.

Nigel Farage is such a peculiar looking man, I can't help but wonder what on earth his genetic heritage is..., if he wore spectacles he'd look like Mister Magoo - it's as if his face is melted, maybe he looks that way as a result of living a life full of woe or something, his nose is definitely not British and his eyes remind me of an ant or maybe more so of a busy bee...anyway, he's kind of got a creepy-crawly vibe about hisself....ooooh perhaps he's like a cold blooded snake or he could be a member of the illuminati and his features are in fact lizard like.

He doesn't look English to me...English people (proper) have fat faces....the lords and ladies and the dukes and duchesses look a lot like horses but ordinary English people mostly have round dials...

I just think that the way you look is so important, you know....it says a lot about who you are.

No you do not. Your joining was just before the forums when into its decline.

I second that emotion....and would go further to suggest that perhaps his joining caused that decline....

I think that forum contributions by certain repeat offenders...I mean posters...could possibly suggest that the way they bully people into submission via outrageous untrue comments (like claiming someone was a paedophile once etc.....) and their unchanging rhetoric delivered so aggressively might suggest about a certain someone that they are a monumental bore, incapable of critical thinking and dull, dull, dull to the very core plus that they are an awful sad sack

But hey...enough about me!!

Ah sure I was just employing a wee bit of dastardly manipulation in order to help the fellow from nottingham get his point across....

I was worried the link to the video might get lost in the melee.

I had an idea that reverse psychology of a sort might get people to look and take note - that was all.

ETA: Perhaps Notts would be interested in this...

if you follow Panti Bliss' twitter account, you will see that she is garnering huge kudos for the speech she gave and interestingly lots of lecturers and teachers are exposing their students to the speech and getting the classrooms to discuss it. It's quite exciting to see that happen

Plus I think if people want to see the real horror of true homophobic diatribe they could log on to Emmanuel Uduaghan's facebook page!

^^^^you might not want to read this but I think you're current avatar makes you look kind of horrible..you should change it to a better image.

I'm with pollygraf..I prefer men who are short-ish....I'm not impressed by height at all in a sexual attractiveness sense...I much prefer men to be my height, I like being on an equal footing with them and genuinely find men who are my height and build plus dark haired and blue-eyed very very attractive....I wouldn't deliberately find a fair haired man attractive and I wouldn't find a man shorter than me attractive either and I definitely don't find men who are too tall or too big attractive also...but I'm 5'10" so I must desire a man who is between my height and maybe 6' 2" to make me feel at ease....and apparently that is tall?

Posted: 11/21/2013 8:20:24 PM

Russell Brand does believe in globalization, I regard him as part of the system with a very extravagant attire stolen by other subcultures.

Are you going to get your provo mates from down the local in Kilburn to kneecap him for his supposed hypocrisy then...seeing as you appear to disapprove of his universal message?

In order to affect change within the system you need to be in someways aligned to it, not by becoming some impossible terrorist or war mongerer or worse, a total toady.... but by embracing elements of the system and using those supposed accepted norms to encourage people to rethink their stances and preparedness to believe and trust in something that makes no actual sense in stark cold reality when critical thinking is applied.

Who watched the BBC documentary earlier tonight where British Army soldiers admitted to there being a 'shoot to kill' policy in Northern Ireland and where they confessed to shooting people dead in drive by shootings on the basis of photographs of supposed terrorists who turned out to be victims of mistaken identity?

Oh dear, an exercise in banal verbosity and a non-compliant main image just to complete the thing......

...or an exercise in exorcising the malware of a demented mind caused by overuse of A-list drugs, alcohol and some grass or hashish - beware the trojan horse which attaches itself to the weak willed and causes many an individual to self destruct !!

'm calling troll................

He's swarthy and greasy and tends to live underground, calling his lifestyle 'subversive'...more akin to a mole or moley from Toadhall ...a cartoonish element to the proceedings...it's amusing that he's currently claiming to be at least 3" taller than his actual height - I wonder why?

Russell Brand. Does he have a point?
Posted: 11/5/2013 5:49:52 PM
I have just watched the video too...I think Russell Brand made many very valid points and I wish to God I could have his baby.... nothing to do with my gusset being moistened by his flamboyent attire, his passion, his so true sense making comments and his self deprecation......his and my genes would make our progeny a force to be reckoned with hehe.

So many stand out comments he made in that interview....I liked how he said "David Cameron thinks 'profit' is not a dirty word...I say it is a dirty word because everywhere there is profit there is also deficit"

But what was most poignant to me right now where his comments on the years that he was a drug addict when explaining why he doesn't vote i.e. "I was part of a social and economic class that is under-served by an indifferent political system and drug addiction is one of the problems it creates when you have huge under-served impoverished populations people get drug problems...etc." and then he goes onto explain that apathy is not the individual's problem as they are disappointed and disillusioned by the apathy of those in power.

A friend of mine's husband died a couple of weeks ago, I only heard about his death last Thursday and his situation has been on my mind all day today...his kids shouldn't have been left fatherless, his wife shouldn't have been left a widow and it's all down to drug addiction in some form or another, without going into details about his circumstances, it does seem to me that there are many people who the government and those in power choose to ignore and even deliberately allow to wallow in the mire...till death or lengthy prison sentences take them from society...and it does seem like it's a hopeless situation when this particular thing has been going on for decades upon decades whereby children have been stolen from their parents due to early deaths and parents have been stolen from their children due to the same....and a generation of children who never knew their mothers and fathers have been brought up by their grandparents....

So, yes, for me, Russell Brand does have a point....absolutely!

Strange how a poster who claims to be so intelligent and worldly, well at least of the British Isles, sees a link between homosexuality and pederasty but then it could be suggested their sense of propriety goes out the window when given a chance to take a pop at someone who has exposed them for what they are

I don't know if that part of your post was directed at my persona or post or anything that I have said ever but anyways...you are the person who created the initial allusion e.g. post 61:

Isn't there a rule about overtly sexual language, pederasti and/or homophobia? Perhaps some may have 'accidental' sex with boys from behind whist they are 'drunk' or it may be a fantasy but the topic is womens hair length so I agree with Daver, it all sounds rather flaming, troll like, and depending on the age of the 'boy', illegal.

Another poster laughed at your grasping at straws to which you further emphasised in your response to post 66 your skewered perspective of the post you were originally complaining about e.g. post 68:

And yes I do view his "nothing worse than" comment as homophobic.

Why and WTF ?

How can it be possible for a heterosexual male to be accused of being homophobic because he stated that he wouldn't like to wake up or arise from his drunken stupor straddled to a female with a more androgynous look than he'd like?

All he is guilty of doing is stating that it would be a turn for him, sexually, to imagine copulating with a boy instead of a woman....I know loads of gay men who can't stand even the mention of vaginas, does that make those men women haters?

Russell Brand. Does he have a point?

I've never been in a position where I've needed any specific help - well, there was one time and it was a couple of decades ago now and the bloke I went to see in my hour of need didn't allow me to forget his non-favour at every other election campaign... he did feck all for me ...I just appreciate those who are dynamic and seen to be very proactive in all sorts of issues personal to our community and are completely committed to doing everything possible for us.

Ideally, I'd prefer to vote for a party that represents my political idealogies but so many politicians are so full of crap you can't really be sure if they believe in the stuff they say they believe in.

I haven't watched the video...will do afterwards when I have a minute.

Lately, I've been thinking that all of our various nations are seemingly answerable to a higher power and I don't mean God at all so it doesn't matter who is voted in because as seperate individual nations it would appear none have autonomy anyway.

Personally, I vote for the person who would have my community's interest as their main priority and has a history of at least trying their best to do their best for their constituency - I tend not to vote for a political party as such.

Haha.....glad to see some things never change, people still ready to pounce at the slightest thing and turning an innocent (but witty) comment into an act of paedophilia!!!

Ludicrous isn't it?

I wasn't quite sure if the poster in question was accusing the other poster of being anti-pederasty and therefore being homophobic and then I thought "hold on....that post bore zero resemblance to what the other poster was accusing it of saying...how peculiar!" I also can't help wondering what could be homophobic about thinking older men and teenage boys who aren't adults yet having sexual relations together is wrong if that was the case.

But the same complainant had no issue with something written on another thread (now deleted) by someone who thought it funny to slag off homosexuality by suggesting someone was gay because of the way they expressed themself....apparently I was lacking a sense of humour when I didn't see the funny side.

Re the short hair/long hair debate or vice versa....I think some women look better with longer hair styled well to suit their face and that some women look amazing with shorter hair styled to suit their face.....long hair left to lay lacklustre, lifeless and flat around your head probably won't do you any favours when it comes to trying to attract men into your bed...but if the bloke you're interested in is the sort to fantasise ultimately about tugging any woman with long hair's ponytail whilst riding her as if she is a bucking bronco then you are onto a winner even if you look like death warmed up or worse just because of those lovely long tresses.

p.s. Col....Mac is a teatotaller, so it's doubtful he'd find himself in a drunken stupour doing anything.

I haven't read the trilogy but I'm rather interested in seeing the movie especially given that it's been announced Jamie Dornan is to star as the male lead in it - he was great in that series called 'The Fall' as an actor and of course he's extremely attractive looking as are the majority of Irish men plus all those other English born men of Irish extraction except maybe the pogues' lead singer and possibly Elvis Costelloe who isn't that terrible looking either and the Gallagher bros and that Steven Coogan plus Peter Kay.

Pam Eyres was a naughty naughty girl..so mischievous.

Contact one of the mods - it sounds as if you might be blocked from posting threads but your problem could also involve not posting enough words /characters to pass muster but I think one is generally given a warning that not enough words or letters etc. have been posted and are asked to try again...there are many and varied reasons why people can't post threads and it might not be because you have been banned from doing so...the help forum on here is another place you should visit to see if anybody else has had your issue i.e.

http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingForum4.aspx

On Topic...men are most confusing.

horrendous video though - is your complaint that thing that is called fibromyalgia?

It seems they have made new discoveries about it..whereas before it was believed to psychosomatic it is now understood to have a genuine physiological (etc.) explanation for it - hope they find a cure very soon for all those who suffer with it. - my sister tells me it's not hereditary and for that I am grateful - I couldn't imagine me coping well with that problem at all....I can't stand pain to any degree and I know that after having sufferred a frozen shoulder twice for six months each time - I was totally getting to the point where I would freely opt for suicide those two times...dreadful stuff!

I can't actually name names but it seems to me that in general your fellow forumites are being quite generous to you...so yes you shouldn't become as incensed as you have in my regard - but you have a different point of view and perspective to me - I'm a simple observer and not involved in the cliquey thing at all.

oh damn...I walk by Spanish Chestnut trees every day - baby conkers galore - if only I knew of their magical power - I will pick them up on the way home in future and alert my neighbours to this fascinating fact - I'm sure they will be pleased to know this.

It's terrible living in suburbia all of my life and not knowing these nifty natural facts.

Just as well then that they can spin webs so quickly - no need to worry about them becoming crippled in the least.

What do conkers have to do with averting spiders?

^^^^ you are absolutely correct about there being a clique on here - there's really no doubt about that but GC is not a party to it or any .....

and the funny thing is...I believe that people (not me - because I think you're a bit of a grumpy irritable so and so) who are responding to you are actually trying to be your friend and are being gentle with you so it's kind of amazing that you are so on the defensive from my point of view - you are being treated really well and people are being terribly kind to you - I'm stunned and amazed that you don't see that - I suppose being in pain 24/7 like you are is having a bit of an affect on your personality - you're still hilariously funny to me though.

I remember I once passed by S. O'C in my home town....I barely noticed her but saw a beautiful little boy with golden hair jumping around trying to avoid the cracks in the pavement chasing after her - he was so stunning because he was oblivious to everything and charmingly full of the joys of life - pure innocence and so happy - I tried to catch the eye of his mother who turned out to be Sinead but she had her head down and looked rather meek - I wanted to smile at her and would have loved to have said to her what a beautiful boy - well done you missus!....anyway, as far as I am concerned gloriously beautiful children like him don't come about by accident - they are clearly nurtured in the proper way, indulged in as is proper and allowed to simply be - so to my mind miley was being a completly ignorant cow when she dared to slag off Sinead and her parents should have had a word with her about her dreadful behaviour.

I remember years ago, I met a bloke who was a big fan of Siouxie and the Banshees. I think he was about 16 or 17 when he went to see them in concert and he spent the whole couple of hours in the front row completely mesmerised by Siouxie's vagina - apparently she wore some kind of outfit that deliberately exposed it - that was way back in the 80's and I suppose it was a very punk anarchic thing to do if it was done purposefully.

Also it could be seen as her reclaiming her sexuality, doing as she wished, being a powerful strong independent woman - and then nowadays we have that Ukranian lot called 'the femme movement' or something similar who run around exposing their bare chests with feminist slogans written all over them in order to shock etc.

Miley Cyrus' wrecking ball video was so embarrassing for any real woman to witness as was her VMA performance - she came across as very uncomfortable despite her bravado - she's only 20, barely out of her teens and doesn't know anything about being a woman at all and it definitely seemed as if she was being given the wrong advice about how to sell her music - it was all very disappointing and embarrassing and no doubt some very unscrupulous males were behind all of that idiocy.

BTW Colin, I don't think you are a forum hooligan - Is this the thread where you were so accused? Made me laugh so much to read what was being said about you when none of it is true at all.

A million years ago (well about 1972 actually) I had two or three women in my life who were very up for the 'no strings' deal - time & health awareness has moved on a little since those days..

...interesting because nowadays the largest demographic to present themselves at gum clinics are the over 55's ..perhaps your search for a 'bit on the side' or a little 'afternoon delight' should be extended to include women of a certain age.

My youngest son gets chased by girls of his own age quite a lot and he does not like them being so forward at all - apparently he can't respect women who are too obvious, he prefers the more enigmatic, coquettish types and finds the opposite a total turn off - I think he's some kind of throwback to Victorian times myself. I told him that when I was younger, I preferred to be in control of whatever proceedings might occur by being the one to state my interest and intent initially....in my experience most fellas loved it if you approached them first and were very flattered by the attention, not having to try too hard was probably a bit of relief for the more shy and retiring amongst the male populations.

I personally can't abide the bollix some men come out with in order to get you into the sack or to commit yourself to them entirely especially when the world is your oyster and you might have choices galore, I can't stand being manipulated but don't mind being slightly Machiavellian myself..perhaps my son and myself are the same but with genders reversed.

I've personally witnessed lots of couples being borne of one of the pair being the one who chased and waited and persisted in attaining their particular goal..once some of us set our sights on someone...there is no stopping us.

I can't but help wonder if her demise will be as prophesised by Ms. O'Connor.

It makes for interesting viewing the tit for tat exchanges on the aul' t'interweb between the pair - Ms. Cyrus comes across as being a really badly brought up young woman - she's a horrible b1tch - I'd be so ashamed if my daughter was as arrogant and pig ignorant as Cyrus has shown herself to be, although I'd probably forgive her for it all given her ages and lack of experience of the 'real world'.

But honestly you do have to wonder what it is about her parenting that has her behaving the way she is right now - I can't believe her Ma and Da didn't at least teach her manners before now.

I c&p'ed the link from the original post into my address bar and it just brought me to the current news of the 'Torygraph' ...no scandalous images were to be found of the nubile teenager who once was - was she the one who was snapped/papped by a paparazzi wearing no knickers whilst wearing a very mini mini-skirt?

Playing devil's advocate vs trolling

Msg 37

I'm not sure if you are deliberately misunderstanding my point but misunderstood it was.

The threads being bumped (which by the way is a and all forum/s no-no) are ones from way back in the day when this UK forum was basically new and a fledgling one - it found it's legs eventually and everybody began to behave in accordance with the set rules which came about after a certain amount of reviewing of previous thread topics and responses to said threads and membership activity plus complaints et al.

I'm not super happy with the rules on here or content with the restrictions as a consequence we all, equally, have to suffer due to unwittingly being guilty of a rule infraction which is completely up to the mod in question deciding that you are an attention seeking whore or troll extraorinaire etc. e.g. flame thrower and drama merchant.

As far as I am concerned the reason I would like age old threads to be preserved is because it shows the development of the uk forums.....the older threads also bear witness to the extraordinary wit and incredible cleverness of previous posters along with describing history for the last almost 8 years or less within the uk (to an extent popular culture)..things might not have changed so much and concerns from almost a decade ago might still be relevant today but attitudes were probably a little different and therein lies the curiosity factor should someone be a natural born archivist.


I'm convincedthat Marcus reckons it might be a pension plan.

He owns everything we've all ever posted on here after all.........

Playing devil's advocate vs trolling
Posted: 9/26/2013 5:04:14 PM

I was informed yesterday that I had been 'accused' of trolling- that's why I have looked the topic up on here. After reading the thread, I think i agree with one of the above posters who suggested something on the lines of that one can be accused of trolling by others who simply dont like what you have to say. . . I think playing the devils advocate is a really good way to challenge peoples, and ones own, beliefs and opinion.

You were probably accused of being a troll because of your impetus to bump up old threads which currently break the rules but were being saved for the sake of posterity...and deliberately so that you could cause other more on topic and pertinent threads to be lost in the milieu.

It's rare that you have anything worthwhile to add to a discussion other than to remind us that homophobia exists elsewise your posts are pithy and off topic and are exceedingly unhelpful also boring in the extreme.

You can't have a serious debate if the local forum clique have got everyone too scared to actually say what they think.

You often find that it only requires one person to defend the other side and suddenly the flood gates open and a whole load of people join the debate.

Too true - particularly at the moment - I often think "how far are people prepared to go when it comes to rewriting history on here and denying the actual truth"?

It's kind of crazy how some are so intent on defending the indefensible in the interests of preserving friendships and maintaining contact with ne'erdowells who might just get their back sometime or another.

A troll to me deliberately sets out to be negative spiteful or nasty for their own entertainment and the entertainment of like minded people without any regard for those that they hurt or the concept of fairness or reason

Good definition and it's happening on here loads recently.

There was no stalking or harassment.

Perception is reality...and what I witnessed was posts being stalked as in followed and responded to with extraordinary snarky ripostes and the harassment I'm referring to is the half dozen or so women who'd been messaged warning them about your good self....you don't view that in the same way I did?

That's fine ...apparently others believe you two were having a bit of a laugh...pity the other people involved weren't informed about you both just taking the proverbial P..I became unwittingly involved in the drama of it all which I didn't appreciate because I had deliberately ignored all of the carping purposefully in the hopes all the issues would be worked out and everybody would get along eventually....I also found the shenanigans of a certain woman quite ridiculous..her arrogance extreme and her need to punish you cyberpath- like - she was behaving like a freak obsessed - the fact you can't distinguish between pathological obsession and proper respectful treatment as a human being is worrying albeit could explain your right wing bias politically as in your soul has been abused from day one?

Msg 18

[.......]I realise that this is all 'thinly disguised' and 'subtle' but really, taking ancient history and regurgitating it as stalking is all a bit of a nonsense (& yes, I was on here at the time, & yes, I was the one that foretold it would all 'end in tears'[......]

So you witnessed exactly the same as me but.........

...at first I thought you were referring to the OP and were in agreement with me as to the demerits of the OP but instead you were wont to continue the lie that the interaction I referred to was all perfectly understandable and not humiliating in the least for the intended victim and his other love interests....

I used to be a keen environmentalist volunteering for all sorts of good works round my area and becoming a champion of conservation - I was getting somewhere and I was making useful contacts and then politics reared it's ugly head - all I wanted to do was some worthwhile saving of the planet and educating the people of my area how to protect their environment, how to exert their rights etc. etc. It's not so bad where I live we have a good amount of green areas and native trees and wild meadows are plentiful but the ugly face of politics (purely because money was involved in the way of grants and lots of people decided they knew best how the money should be spent and fights amongst them all ensued) caused me to bow out entirely because I hate that kind of crap so much. It's a shame because I was a really good teacher and the kids I was involved in educating then still remember me to this day.
